AH, border collies. I had a border collie mix, and MAN do they have a chasing/herding instinct! I think as long as the dog doesn’t seem to be in any kind of pain, you should be in the clear. They are pretty tough!

I owned a miniature schnauzer that took a flying leap of a second story dec, he kept on going and never looked back, he wanted to go play frisbee with the kids and that was that….a dog will let you know if something’s wrong, as scary as it is to see it, he’s most likely fine.

I don’t have experience with Border Collies, but yeah, I would have you or your husband rub his legs and joints to see if he reacts at all.  (This is good to do anyways, dogs tend to love it) If he doesn’t react, I wouldn’t worry!  You’ve got a beautiful boy there!

My dog is a little daredevil.  I can say from experience (with him), that if he hurt himself, we would instantly know.  I would say just keep an eye on him, and, as PP mentioned, have your hubby rub his legs and see if there’s any reaction.  If not, he’s more than likely fine.

At some point when your dog’s adrenaline isn’t going (like when he’s relaxed at home) have your husband walk him in a straight line away from you and then towards you. Keep your eyes on his gait and see if you notice lameness in any of his legs.

Also take note of his appetite. If he’s in pain, chances are he won’t feel too much like eating.
